HP dv6-3205tu win 7 64bit

Hey guys,
i have a HP dv6-3205tu windows 7 64bit laptop that got a virus on it and i had to remove the hdd to get rid of the virus, when i put the hdd back in it all boots up fine but when i connect an ethernet cable to my laptop i get the yellow triangle on the connection icon, but when i connect via a wireless network i dont get the issue it goes through fine.
i have tried uninstalling the driver and installing th latest version from HP's website but i have had no luck with the new driver

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated

Hi joef123 - there is definitely no static IP or DNS settings.. all addressing is obtained dynamically!

Given what you had to do, consider running a repair install from the Windows 7 DVD. Do backup the system first. The following Seven Forums link describes the process.

look in device manager - is the network card installed without errors?
if no lan card shows - it can be disabled in the bios
